Gallery: ZTE Orbit
Published by Rafe Blandford at
This gallery features the ZTE Orbit, the second Windows Phone device from the Chinese manufacturer. It uses the new lower specification requirements for Windows Phone (7x27 processor, 256MB RAM). While no price has beenn officially announced, it is likely to be one of the cheapest Windows Phone devices on the market. The demo device was an early prototype, which was reflected in its overall build quality.
These images were captured at Mobile World Congress 2012. The ZTE stand had just one Orbit on display, along side the ZTE Tania, the company's first Windows Phone device.
In a direct comparison with the Nokia 610 the ZTE Orbit should win on price. However, its overall design and build quality may count against it, especially when the additional functionality provided by Nokia's exclusive software applications is taken into account.
